No need to spread the less-and-less-well-kept secret any further though....

I say the more the merrier. Then when the boomers are too old for their luxury vans the used market will be flooded and we gen xers can scoop them up for a song!

Haha, not sure it will workout quite that way. There are twice as many GenX AND Millennials, each has about the same population numbers as boomers right now. Should keep prices up 😊. It would be interesting to do an age poll on this forum!! My guess is pretty evenly distributed across each generation group.

The thing I worry about with all this recent #vanlife focus is lots of people out there in vans all trying to free camp, which will likely result in increased restrictions on overnight parking in lots of places.

Yes, I know I'm part of the problem... but at least I can say I was "van-lifeing" it before it was a hashtag :-)
